Wearing your costume to a party is not all that you can do with a costume. You can have lots of other fun as well.
If you want to have great fun with your costumes beyond wearing them at a costume party, what options do you have? We’ll, there are indeed several options that you have and we will explore most of these options in this article so that you can create more utility for the costumes that you purchase or better yet so that you can easily justify the cost of the costume that you choose to purchase the next time you are going to attend a costume party. The last thing that you want to happen when you purchase a costume is to wear the costume just once and then never see it again because you have no more use for it. Of course, you could rewind the costume and wear it at another costume party but this can get quite monotonous and frankly quite uncreative. What would this say about you right? So how about you find more utility for the costumes that you choose to purchase so that you don’t have to be uncreative or monotonous while at the same time not feel like you are just wasting money.
For the first thing that you could do, how about purchasing a costume whose parts you can use for the rest of the year and in ordinary life and not just at a costume party. If you think that this is unimaginable, then think again. Let’s say you want to dress like an international spy. How about a James Bond or may be an altogether different costume like a Bruce Wayne costume before he changes into Batman? For the ladies, how about, a wonder woman costume. Or if that has been overdone, a Jessica Jones costume is a great modern costume that you could easily rock. Whatever, you choose, the point is to make sure that the costume that you choose has bits and pieces that you could wear all year round if you chose to. For the boys or men, a suit will work any day, and so will the shoes, tie, belt and maybe even hat. For the ladies, a great pair of boots and some nice pants and a jacket could always have some space in your regular closet space, right? The best part is that you could shop for these costumes online or you could also shop for them at a regular store depending on what you choose.
The second option for what you could do to create more utility for your costume beyond using it at a costume party is to create a disguise and have some fun with it. If you have not tried this before, trust me it can be lots of fun to do. Just think about yourself as someone you would like to be and then be that person for one day of the week. Preferably a weekend of fun with your friends and just see how much it will make their day and yours. For this, how about a queen of hearts costume for starters.
